"The man that hath no music in himself...

...nor is not mov'd with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils." The Merchant of Venice, Act V, Scene i by William Shakespeare. (I'm currently listening to Chopin's Nocturne No. 1 in B flat minor, to which there are no lyrics, so you get Shakespeare instead.)

Which also puts me in mind of a quote my family uses often:

"I'm dying, Egypt, dying!" (Marc Antony in Anthony and Cleopatra, IV:15)

This quote is much more useful than one would think. (Or perhaps we simply thrive off non sequiturs. It's hard to tell.)

Irony has trouble getting her tail to sit still for bath-time.
So anyway, it's the end of the week already! I've gotten nothing useful done, just been doing laundry and meeting with people who I hadn't seen since before Christmas and family and company. Next week I will hit the myriad of small things that have been saving up to get done. I literally did laundry all day for four days to catch up from the complete lack thereof from the break. Phew!

Aaaaaaaaand hnow........(drumroll please).........

The Linkage Trivia! (Kaboom-Tish-Bang!)


Lovely, if overpriced, wooden music balls
Fun kids' dress-up hats
I got a huge kick out of this knit “sushi for a kindergartener” set. When my brother-in-law has kids, I’m getting them this. Not sure why, it just seems appropriate. 
Fun shoe clips to jazz up shoes.
Recently re-discovered my favorite scene from Monty Python

Have a great weekend! Much love!

Just saw the Invisible Mother Victorian Photos and don't know whether I am more disturbed or amused. ^.^
